Help that works



IPA is engaged in transitional and developing countries with
focus on learning and education.

IPA offers help for self-help, e.g. through projects in the fields of food production and water supply as well as the issuance of micro credits.

The unique aspect of the IPA brand is the
integration of youth in the implementation of projects. This gives Swiss students the opportunity to gain formative experiences.

School classes and junior-teams define, plan and execute their projects independently but are supervised by experienced IPA staff.


All projects are inspected by IPA on location, and once completed, are checked over again. This way all donors have the guaranty that their money is being used in exactly the right places and that people are really getting the help they need.

Malawi Revisited

north. We inspected, discussed or checked on as many as 25 projects within two weeks. Once more it turned out to be an emotional rollercoaster ride. A project addressing the cultivation of food is at an advanced stage; the group of peasants are working hard inthe fields, immensely grateful for the new irrigation system. Then again, we could hardly believe our eyes at the look of a teacher's government house. On the one hand there is dancing and singing in honour of the Swiss guests, on the other there are women collecting "drinking water" from dirty water holes, which left us speechless. We visited schools, prisons, peasant groups, health centres and villages,driving 1,600 kilometres. The only thing we never experienced was: a moment of rest.
